We are honoured to introduce our latest race weathered project: the Ferrari F1-90 at 1:8 scale, precisely as raced by Nigel Mansell at the 1990 Mexico Grand Prix on the 24th of June 1990. The F1-90 is considered one of the most beautiful Formula 1 cars of all time and this unique edition of five 1:8 scale models has been meticulously hand-painted and detailed by our artisans in Bristol to precisely show every detail of the race dirt that adorned the car as it crossed the finish line.
At Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, Mansell qualified fourth in changeable conditions alongside Senna on the second row. An intense race followed at the high altitude and notoriously bumpy Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez. On the penultimate lap, Mansell daringly passed around the outside of Berger going into the ultra-fast 180-degree Peraltada corner, stealing back second place and securing the Scuderia’s first 1-2 victory for two years.
The first three pieces have just been completed in our workshops and are available for immediate sale.
